Neighbors challenge Lauderdale airport expansion
among the top five most delay-prone facilities in the country, according to airport spokesperson Greg Meyer.
"We consistently have six to eight minute delays," Meyer said. "We need additional runway space for commercial flights."
Currently, commercial flights use the airport's north runway, and the south runway is used for general aviation, Meyer said. General aviation includes smaller, private planes and corporate jets.
Seeking an alternative
Linda Sacco, who serves as vice-president of the Dania Beach Airport Advisory Board, said her main objection to the expansion of the south runway is the fact that there is a viable alternative that can accomplish the same purpose: a north parallel runway.
"A north parallel runway would have no impact on wetlands and would keep the flight pattern mostly over unpopulated areas," she said. "Noise and pollution from jets landing and taking off, no matter what direction the prevailing winds dictate, would not so directly impact the health of residents near the airport."
Kevin Letize, a general contractor who lives just south of Dania Cut-off Canal with his wife and two children, agrees that a second north runway would be better for the area.
We're trying to be good neighbors. But we're in a tough position here.'
� Airport spokesperson Greg Meyer
Rick and Linda Sacco bought their home near Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport over 18 years ago. In recent years they've been protesting a runway expansion plan they fear will destroy the area's calm.
Waterfront residents fear loss of Old Florida lifestyle
DOUGLAS JORDAN � Waterfront Times Writer
When Linda Sacco and her husband Rick bought their home over 18 years ago in Davis Isles, a quiet waterfront enclave in Dania Beach, they knew that a major airport was part of the immediate landscape.
Actually, Linda believes the airport and area residents can coexist. But a current plan to expand its south runway has her fuming.
"If the runway is expanded as planned, all of the neighborhoods along the Dania Cut-off Canal will be inundated with commercial jet noise and pollution," Sacco said. "The outdoor leisure lifestyle of residents
will be impossible, and the environmental impact will be significant."
It's certainly not a new issue. The ongoing plan for a new, longer south runway that would allow Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to accommodate more and larger commercial airliners comes after two decades of study, debate and controversy. The FAA approved the current plan in December, 2008. The City of Dania Beach continues to fight the expansion in court.
Sacco said about 1,800 homes in Dania Beach, and a few hundred more in Davie, Cooper City and Hollywood, are in the airport-affected area, "either officially according to noise contours drawn by the FAA or unofficially according to the reality of the flight patterns over single family homes and apartments."
Airport officials hope the additional runway would help reduce flight delays. Currently, the airport is
"It's ridiculous that the airport chose to expand over us when they clearly could have expanded without affecting everyone on the south side of the Dania Cut-off Canal," Letize said. "It would be easy to do what local residents are asking by knocking down the 13 now-abandoned buildings on the north side of the runway and putting in a parallel runway."
Meyer said that's just not a viable option.

Arsenic Bank's defaced sea grasses being restored
ARNOLD MARKOWITZ � Waterfront Times Writer
Good things are happening in the marine environment, and that means better fishing, diving and the intangibles that make a day on the water more enjoyable. There's an ironic back-story: those good things are happening now because bad things happened before.
If you fish certain grass flats of Florida Bay in Everglades National Park � or you don't fish them because bad boating has torn them up so badly � take a look at the damage done five years ago on Arsenic Bank. Then imagine it as good as new.
That should make you feel better, especially if you launch your skiff in the lower Florida Keys. The bank is about 6 miles north-northeast of Conch Key on the Overseas Highway.
And if you dive or snorkel on the offshore reefs of Biscayne National Park, you've probably wished someone would pick up all the derelict crab and lobster traps and ropes littering the ocean floor.
Thanks to grants of money from the non-profit, non-
government South Florida National Parks Trust (SFNPT] - itself a good result of a bad thing � someone is picking up the trap debris in Biscayne and Arsenic Bank's defaced sea grasses are closer to being restored.
A 72-foot yacht, Rebel Yell, ran aground there in 2006. Failing to float her, the crew powered off the shoal, making such a mess that the owner was made to pay $295,000 for restoration.
More was needed. Into that breech leapt the SFNPT, a non-government and non-profit outfit that donates slews of money for projects that Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks, and Big Cypress Preserve, can't fit into their tight budgets.
Don Finefrock, the trust's executive director, announced a $35,000 grant to pay about half the amount still needed to manage the project at Arsenic and three others that are being planned.
"We're pursuing matching funds and may hear as soon as this week on whether we've got the additional money or not," Finefrock reported in mid-April.
The trust itself is a child of environmental damage.
It was created in 2002 with a $1.5 million penalty that Carnival Cruise Line had to pay for dumping waste oil in near-shore Atlantic Ocean waters.
Finefrock said its money will help to hire a project manager for the Rebel Yell jobsite and three others now planned, and to set up procedures making it easier for volunteer groups to undertake future restorations.
"[The manager] will also help to craft a seagrass restoration plan that will ensure that all of the up-front planning and compliance is done for projects in the future," Hallac said.
A lot more money will be needed for those projects.
"The cost per acre is highly variable and a function of the damage severity, the remoteness of the site and conditions in the area," Hallac said. "It is not unusual to cost between $100,000 and $500,000-plus per acre."
The $35,000 grant to Everglades is pocket change in terms of federal budgets, and a relatively small one for SFNPT. Still, it makes a big splash for its size by getting the Arsenic Bank restoration started. By financing a plan

Scott's anti-government stance could impact fishing
ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront Times Columnist
Disquieting developments with worrisome implications for fishing-doers turn our attention to Florida politics. It's a subject that can range from tedious to traumatic, both good reasons to duck it in favor of subtly instructive, occasionally a-musing tracts about catching fish and communing with nature when the bite's off.
That's why you seldom see off-center opinionating in this space, but duty calls so here it comes.
Rodney Barreto has announced his resignation as chairman of the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, saying he won't ask Gov. Rick Scott for reappointment as a member when his second five-year term expires on Aug. 1.
"Ten years is a long time," Barreto told the "Miami Herald" when he stepped down at the commission's April meeting.
He's right, but I wish he hadn't quit. Scott gets to appoint Barreto's replacement (as a commissioner, not chairman) and that gives me the heebie-jeebies.
The new governor, a newcomer to Florida who knows little about government except that he dislikes it, is against regulations. Right after taking office he issued an executive order putting every new regulation, not yet enacted, on hold until he could have it reviewed for desirability.
That was an impetuous, presumptuous action that he had to cancel once he found out he was over-reaching his authority. A new executive order, issued in April, established an agency to review regulations proposed by other agencies that are legally under the governor's control. It isn't clear whether FWC is subject to his will

beyond his authority to appoint commissioners.
Judging by Scott's other actions, we'd better clench our fists and teeth, shut our eyes real tight and wish with all our might that it isn't.
Barreto's coming vacancy in August is the only one Scott can refill this year. Four other commissioners' terms expire next year. Hopefully that's enough time to moderate Scott's views about regulation, at least where the FWC and conservation-centric agencies are concerned.
FWC is almost entirely a regulatory agency, which makes it a potential target of Scott's disapproval. Of course it has other functions, such as a research institute, but that outfit's purpose is to supply the science on which fish and wildlife regulations are based.
Fears that Scott is out of his depth are well founded. He's been trying to slash the budgets of regional water management districts, evidently without knowing much about their conservation missions.
I found it nervously amusing that a Scott aide recently sought a briefing from the Attorney General's office, asking questions like how many judges sit on the state Supreme Court. There are seven.
While wishing with all our might that FWC is safe
from Scott's simplistic notion of governance, we should be fair enough to wish even harder that he learns pretty quickly where he mustn't try to impose it.
Speaking of being fair, I should mention that in 2001, I was almost this worried when Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Barreto to the Commission. Why? Because he's a lobbyist from Dade County, where lobbyism deserves its reputation for buying and selling political influence and persuading local government agencies to do the wrong thing.
Barreto, personally untouched by that sort of sleaze, turned out to be a pretty good commissioner. The other six elected him FWC chairman in 2004. Gov. Charlie Crist sensibly gave him a second 5-year appointment and he's been elected chairman annually since 2006.
More fairness: Lobbyists can be good guys, too. Hooray for those who represent organizations devoted to sticking up for fishing, hunting, boating, conservation, declining species, clean air and water in Congress and every state legislature. What do you think Florida would be like today if not for the work of the Audubon Society, to name just one?
Barreto, who grew up hunting and fishing in Florida, deserves at least a passing grade for his service on the FWC. That's practically a medal of honor in a state where leaders of other agencies often leap into hot water or are scalded by the actions of stinkers on the staff.
When Barreto announced that he's leaving the

If airport plan takes off, residents fear end result
AIRPORT | FROM PAGE 1
"The north parallel option presents operational and safety issues, due to the proximity that it would have to the existing runway," Meyer said. "We also have a number of aviation tenants on the north side who have long-term lease agreements with the airport. Those tenants would be displaced."
Old Florida
The Saccos enjoy living on the water in Davis Isles, a suburban waterfront community of 76 homes. They believe the South Florida lifestyle they've known for over 50 years is threatened by the plan.
"We live in a unique section of Broward County, where people use canoes, kayaks, and boats to explore areas rich with marine and bird life," she said. "That will forever be destroyed if the south runway is expanded."
Letize also fears that the Old Florida, small town lifestyle of Dania Beach is in danger of disappearing.
"Our outdoor living is equal to or better than our indoor lifestyle," he said. "The airport is trying to ruin the delicate ecosystem of Dania Beach and its year-round outdoor paradise."
Letize, whose company specializes in green, energy efficient homes, has passionately opposed the south runway expansion for years, and has created a video on YouTube that highlights his thoughts on the matter.
Meyer said the airport has taken great efforts to appease residents, through a noise mitigation plan and a "green belt," which includes a park and barrier between the community and the airport.
"We're trying to be good neighbors," Meyer said. "But we're in a tough position here. We're boxed in here,

and we're trying to meet the demand of air traffic. The irony of the noise issue is the fact that the larger, commercial jets tend to be quieter than the smaller corporate jets that currently use the south runway."
Letize said that's not the only issue.
"I'm most concerned with the poison coming from the jumbo jets, and how badly the emissions will directly affect our health and local wildlife," Letize said. "The airport could have expanded without affecting all of us, but they chose not to. That deserves a fight for my family, doesn't it?"

FWC considering new regulations for permit fish

to bring volunteers into future restorations, it not only saves the park money in the long run but also helps to give more nature-lovers a personal stake in the park.
Another grant of $20,000 from the parks trust will help Everglades to develop a boater education plan. That long-term project is being considered as a requirement for motor boaters to use park waters, especially in Florida Bay where many decades of groundings and propeller scarring � most of them never penalized � have damaged grass flats that may have to wait many more decades for restoration.
In Biscayne National Park, a $40,000 grant will buy the removal of 450 crab and lobster traps lying on the reefs, whole or in pieces, in July when crab and lobster-catching seasons are closed.
That's been an ongoing project for years, with the Trust getting involved for the first time. Finefrock said the grant will pay a contractor for about 7 days of fieldwork.
Elsa Alvear, the park's chief of natural resources, says the plan is to combine the grant with other money to raise the removal goal to as many as 700 traps or equivalent broken ones.
"Because one of the big costs is mobilization, you can get more traps with less money per trap," she said. "The Trust grant enabled this to happen."
Will that get rid of all the eyesore traps until the next hurricane brings in another load? Hardly.
"I wish I could tell you that the park only has 700 traps or trap equivalents. Sadly, this is not the case," Alvear said. "But this project will go a long way to helping the reefs... so we are very happy with the Trust grant."
If everybody understood the fragility of living coral, then nobody would drop anchors onto it, kick it with foot fins, stand on it in dive booties or take chunks of it home as souvenirs.

acts are usually innocent mistakes, NOAA has released a "Marine Etiquette Video" for visitors to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Some of those visitors must guess marine etiquette is like army and air force etiquette � mostly saluting and saying "sir" more often than necessary.
Quite entertainingly narrated by Benicio del Toro, an Oscar-winning actor born in Puerto Rico, the six-minute presentation illustrates the innocent but harmful mistakes that tourists make when they do the reefs. It tells them what not to do.
The underwater camera work is striking and the video is fun to watch. It's good preparation for anyone about to go reef-watching for the first time in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands or anywhere else.
Look for it online at http://vimeo.com/18214767
More proof that we get old too soon, smart too late: Members of the American Association of Retired Persons learned from the AARP Bulletin (in an article by Betsy Towner) that, "Every square mile of ocean contains 46,000 pieces of plastic trash."
The info's source is NOAA. If it's true that senior citizens are more trusting (as AARP has documented), the Bulletin's 50-and-up readers will believe it.

As expected, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has approved a bonefish rule that formalizes the sporting custom of catch and release.
You used to be able to keep one bonefish a day. If you catch a big one and can't resist keeping it for a skin-mount trophy, better get it done by the end of June.
Beginning July 1, bonefish are a catch-and-release species in Florida. That also means hook-and-line tackle only. You can hold that silver rocket briefly for photos � and measurements if it looks like a record-breaker � before releasing it very gently.
There will be an exemption allowing temporary possession for tournament weigh-ins.
Years ago, bonefish caught in the Bahamas could be kept and consumed. Some Bahamian restaurants served them as a novelty dish, but they were more valuable as trolled baits for blue marlin. Now they're more valuable as sport fish, and the Bahamas protect them too.
New draft rules are still pending for permit, Florida pompano and African pompano. Regulations would be extended from state to federal waters, which are allowed where no federal regulations exist.
For the permit � a prized sport fish, not a license � the commission is considering a special zone, a three-month closed season and new size and bag limits for keepers.

Going for brokers
MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront Times Columnist
We've all heard about the cases when a local government closes down a child's lemonade stand, or stops the sale of cookies from a little Girl Scout's porch. No doubt it can cause us to question the reach of government.
Seemingly taking to heart the less-government-is-better approach, the Florida Legislature has introduced CB/HS 50005. It is a rather sweeping bill designed to deregulate a multiple array of jobs now requiring licenses and oversight by the State of Florida.
Among the plethora of occupations: Yacht brokers.
As "Waterfront Times" went to press in late April, the bill appeared to be held up in the Florida Senate. However, if not passed this time around, it could be introduced in the future, with yacht brokers again among the deregulated occupations.
Much of the maritime industry � including licensed yacht brokers themselves � have come out against the deregulation of the industry. As it now stands, a yacht broker's license is not required when:
�A person is selling his or her own vessel;
�The vessel for sale is under 32 feet in length;
�The transaction is on a new yacht;
�The sale and transfer of a vessel under court order, or a transaction occurring from a foreclosure;
�An attorney selling a vessel in connection to his professional services. (Yes, most people who write these laws are attorneys...)
Generally, outside of these exceptions, the sale of a vessel in Florida would be handled by a licensed yacht broker and their sales staff, which brings
up the question, "what does a licensed yacht broker offer?
For starters, licensed yacht brokers must:
�Be bonded in the amount of $25,000, and their salesmen bonded for $10,000;
�Meet a background check by the state and continuously maintain proper conduct required by the state. They cannot be found guilty of a felony or a crime of moral turpitude;
�Keep an escrow account with meticulous records and cannot commingle funds;

�Be subject to the review, discipline and punishment by the Department of Business and Professional Regulations, including heavy fines and removal of licenses, for fraud, misrepresentation, dishonesty, commingling of funds and conviction of a felony or a crime of moral turpitude.
Certainly, these laws bring some comfort to those using a Florida licensed yacht broker. Others might argue that they're not sufficient reason to justify the expense of the present licensing program.
I, on the other hand, might argue that the rules should go far farther than they do now.
As with physicians and attorneys, a professional license sets a minimum standard. For yacht brokers these standards represent specific sales experience and reflect a generally clean record � but is that really enough?
A modern-day yacht sale is a complex transaction. It entails a working understanding of state contracts, federal maritime liens, tax codes and maritime insurance. Moreover, the broker is

Going ape over apps
BOB E. SHERMAN
Waterfront Times Columnist
If you're into technology and boating, it's time to go app. There are many marine apps for your iPad, iPod or iPhone that could be useful when out on the water � or before you head out.
People everywhere rely on their smartphones and tablets for communication, e-mail, web access, entertainment and more. The Navionics Mobile app extends the convenience of these devices to boaters with instant access to Navionics' marine charts, satellite images and points of interest database.
Navionics Mobile lets boaters explore the local cruising grounds, add fishing hotspots, and share their favorite destination with Facebook friends. Once on-board the boat, stored data can be synchronized with Raymarine navigation displays using a simple Wi-Fi connection.
An article in the April/May issue of "BoatU.S. Magazine" listed 16 apps ranging in cost from free to $50. My iPod Touch, which I won at the Palm Beach Boat Show, has several free apps. (Capt. Bob does not pay retail.)
Since some of my iPod apps work only when WiFi is available, they have limited use after I leave home. So when the weather turns bad and the tide goes out, I have to rely on my Checkers and Tic Tac Toe apps to pass the time until I can get off the sandbar.
Before you leave the dock, check the weather with the NOAA or The Weather Channel (TWC) app. Tide tables are available with Shralp Tide and Day Tides by Imray. Neither of these apps has all the tide stations. On Shralp I use the West Palm Beach Canal, to approximate Bakers Haulover Inlet (inside). Be sure you know whether the tide tables are in DST or EST. I was sure that Shralp was in EST,
as are the tables in the "Waterfront Times," so I adjusted my Krieger watch accordingly. However, I was wrong and had to readjust my watch.
On my iPod, in addition to NOAA and TWC, I have Shralp Tides, which shows one location at a time, but it shows five days. Day Tides lets you set several favorite locations, but only shows one day.
I also have Wind Alert, which shows wind direction and speed, air and water temperature for several locations. With the BoatUS app you can view your location on a map or satellite view. With an iPhone you can call for a tow, or access the directory for a free insurance quote. I wouldn't wait until you are 2 miles offshore taking on water to use this feature.
The "BoatU.S. Magazine" article mentioned several apps I found interesting: Friend Mapper lets you and up to 23 of your mates track each other on your iPhone. Everyone in the crew appears on each other's maps, with each position updated every 15 seconds. This one will come in handy for yacht club cruises, caravans, pokerruns, and fishing friends that make trips en masse.
The iNavX app by Navionics can turn your iPhone into a chartplotter for less money than most handheld chart-plotters. Of course Capt. Bob got his GPSMAP 76CSx with West Advantage Rewards, and your iPhone is not water proof and doesn't get satellite reception.
Not an app per se, you can add a bookmark to your homepage, like I did, for the NOAA marine weather. Lastly, before you head back to port, check the Happy Hour app sponsored by "New Times." If you don't see your favorite waterfront bar, contact the newspaper to have it added.
Appy boating.

Call to departing FWC chairman: Get Scott's ear
FISHING | FROM PAGE 3
Commission, he said something that we must hope is a promise he means to keep more actively than passively: "I care deeply about the future of this agency and this Commission and am proud of all that we have accomplished. My commitment to this Commission will not expire with my term as chairman."
How should he continue that commitment? My suggestion: Put your lobbying skills to constructive use, Mr. Barreto, by getting hold of Scott's ear.
Resist telling him a government isn't a business, because he's the type who has to learn that himself, the
hard way. Instead, get him to support this particular part of government by persuading him it's good business and good for business.
Pep talk the governor as you did the rest of us in your last monthly, "As I See It" column on the FWC website. You said as follows, quote:
"Fish and wildlife contribute to Florida's tourism industry. Each year, $20 billion and 250,000 jobs come directly from fish and wildlife in the state, and an additional $18 billion and another 200,000 jobs are the indirect benefit of boating in state waters."

often dealing with these issues in a transaction involving a greater amount of money and a more intricate movement of funds than the average stock or commodity trade.
Like CPAs, stock brokers and insurance brokers, it could be argued that a yacht broker's license should come with an education and examination requirement that includes an ongoing knowledge of industry practices, pertinent law and ethics.
Without such requirements in place (put there by either the state or through aggressive self-regulation), yacht brokers could lose their credibility. As the present deregulation trend would demonstrate, a large segment of the citizenry may not view yacht brokers as the professionals they would hold themselves out to be
(no matter how personally competent or ethical they actually are).
It's certainly a serious concern even if the present deregulation bill fails to go forward. It might very well return in the future as funds for regulation enforcement grow ever tighter. Yacht brokers will have to remain diligent in presenting themselves professionally.
The matter should also remain a concern for the potential yacht buyer and seller. A sign in the office of a very competent yacht broker I know sums up his perceived value to the consumer very succinctly. It reads: "If You're So Smart, Sell Your Own Darn Boat!" Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations.

�"Wildlife viewing is a significant economic engine in Florida, accounting for $5.6 billion and 51,367 jobs of the $20 billion and 250,000 jobs noted earlier."
That's the sort of stuff Scott is most likely to give his attention, but Barreto should time his presentation carefully.
Until we know a lot more about the governor � and until he knows and appreciates a lot more about Florida � it might be wise if nobody tells him we even have a Fish & Wildlife Commission.

Party island near Bali now teams with eco-lodges, resorts
DAN LEVIN
For The New York Times Travel Section
The blaze of white sand licked by the surf was dotted one recent sunlit afternoon with fishing boats and their local owners, a pack of bored men in flip-flops who each kept one eye on their hand of cards and the other on the pale tourist cargo streaming from the docked speedboat onto the main road of the island of Gili Trawangan, east of Bali, in search of beach, beer and bungalow.
From the midst of the throng, the full force of this island's transformation from tiny fisherman settlement to global tourist haven became resoundingly clear. The wail of that ubiquitous island ambassador, Bob Marley, seemed to be coming from every bar and cafe, whose stools overflowed with a sunburned masses gazing at the cerulean water, leafing through guidebooks and sipping Bintang beers.
Tiny Trawangan and its more relaxed sisters, Meno and Air, make up the Gili Islands, an archipelago in Indonesia's Bali Sea that lies just off the coast of Lombok and is reachable only by boat. (The voyage from Bali takes about 90 minutes by speedboat.] Known as the "party" island and the largest of the three, Trawangan has developed a hedonistic reputation as a miniature Koh Samui, with all-night full moon parties and an array of illegal substances openly for sale.
But in the last few years, this island has begun to go chic, with villa resorts and upscale eco-lodges that have proliferated like a luxe algae bloom, attracting the moneyed and the stroller-laden to

their personal pools and solar power for some clear-conscience pampering.
It was one of these that I was destined for, a just-opened complex of villas called the Trawangan Resort at the edge of the island's frenzied development, where goats graze beneath tattered disc jockey party posters and bar reggae fades on the breeze. A horse-drawn carriage known as a cidomo - cars and mopeds are banned - soon arrived with the baggage. After checking in, I headed into a maze of high concrete walls that wound away from the beach to a pair of wooden doors, which opened onto a villa with a private pool, cabana and bed sheets
that, for its nightly price, one hoped hit the stratosphere of thread counts. The resort was so new that kinks still had to be worked out - hot water was absent from my room and the electricity failed during a brief storm.
The resort is the latest of around 10 similarly luxurious accommodations to open its doors in the last few years, adding spa treatments and horseback riding to the usual diving and snorkel-ing diversions long favored by the backpacker set. A bicycle ride around the island, which takes only a half-hour, leads away from the hubbub of bars and young local men hawking "cannabis"
WAYPOINTS
on the southeastern end of the island toward isolated beaches and new eco-villas, their wide patios offering views of palm trees and the ocean.
The Gili Islands were largely uninhabited until the middle of last century, as they lack fresh water sources. Even today, all fresh water and provisions from beer to beef are brought by boat from Lombok.
Boulong, 36, a fisherman and snor-keling guide who grew up on the Gilis, recalls his grandfather telling him how settlers came to Gili Air and then slowly moved on to the other islands to fish, build mosques and start families. As a child, Boulong remembers seeing the first tourists, backpackers from Bali, coming for the day to revel in the solitude of the Gilis' beaches and turquoise waves - still the main attraction for today's tourists.
Yet even as stressed-out foreigners arrive seeking refuge from the outside world, the Gilis have suffered modern problems. The vast reefs that encircle the islands bear scars from decades of blast fishing, in which underwater explosives were used to kill large numbers of fish but also destroyed the coral. During the rainy season, runoff from Lombok and Bali sometimes brings lost sandals, plastic bags and other trash to Trawangan's beaches.

Head to nearby Meno, Air, to avoid noisy atmosphere
GILI ISLANDS I FROM PREVIOUS PAGE
Locals and expatriates are trying to stop this environmental damage from spreading. Blast fishing has been abandoned, and environmentalists on the islands have pioneered a technology that uses a small electric current to accelerate coral growth, leading to a rebirth of marine life.
Delphine Robb, who came to Trawangan seven years ago from France for a diving course and never left, runs the Gili Eco Trust, a local environmental group that encourages resorts and fishermen to go green. The dive shops support the trust's reef restoration projects financially, and resorts are composting and switching to non-chlorinated pools.
"Things are changing in a positive way as people understand they need to combine business with caring for the environment," Robb said.
On a snorkeling trip, recent successes were abundantly clear: Puffer fish flitted among new coral growth as a hawks-bill turtle poked around near some psychedelic parrotfish. There are more than a dozen dive sites, and sea turtles, stingrays and thousands of reef fish abound in deeper water.
The Gilis are recovering from political crises, too. When Muslim extremists bombed a nightclub in a popular Bali resort town in 2002, killing more than 200 people, tourism on the Gilis evaporated. But the allure of the islands has proved impossible to resist, and a subsequent bombing on Bali in 2005, in which more than 20 people died, had only a minor impact on the return of divers and surfers. Indeed, local busi-
nesses report that recent political unrest
The island caters to its new league of tourists. A hotel creates a honeymoon dinner package.
in Thailand seems to have sent beach-hungry travelers to Trawangan in search of white sand and increasingly glamorous accommodations.
"When I first arrived, Trawangan was nothing but backpackers and divers," said Dianne Somerton, an Australian who owns the upscale Kokomo resort, which opened in 2009, and the Beach House resort and restau-
rant, where she was eating dinner alongside beer-swigging surfers and families feasting on jumbo prawns. "Now Bali is so overloaded and Lombok never took off, but the Gilis really have."
As night fell, restaurants near the dock grilled up mahi-mahi and barracuda while bartenders poured cocktails. Some establishments offer a more diverse menu: "Bloody fresh magic mushrooms send you to heaven n' back again - no transport needed," proclaimed one bar sign. Around midnight, an inebriated Australian man hovering near the DJ at the Blue Marlin bar asked a group of revelers, "Want to see my friend drink 2.5 liters of alcohol in 10 seconds?" By then, the quiet of my pool beckoned, and I joined families with sleepy children on the journey home.
Those behind the recent surge of development on Trawangan say they want to preserve the island's natural beauty even as it gets more luxurious, since untrammeled beaches and tranquil waves are what ultimately draw tourists.
"Nobody wants Jet Skis or any of that Mediterranean resort nonsense," said David Street, manager of the Scallywags Resort, a 10-room boutique hotel that opened on Trawangan in 2009. "People come to the Gilis to let their hair down and get horizontal, but there's enough here to feel they're not stuck on an island."
Meno
The most undeveloped island, Meno offers a blissfully chill vibe, where a ban on parties means that the only sounds are the whisper of the surf and the muezzin's call to prayer resounding through the trees. With just
a smattering of bungalows and one dive shop, people come to Meno to read, tan and forget, for a while, their everyday lives beyond its shores.
Air
Home to the largest local community and closest to Lombok, Air is a blend of both worlds. It draws primarily families and honeymooners to its growing collection of villas and bungalows, many of which offer stunning views of Mount Rinjani, the volcano in Lombok, which at 12,000 feet is among Indonesia's largest. A weekly party, combined with Trawangan's rather frenzied development, is also luring the backpacker crowd here.
Up close
Travelers board a boat in Bali to travel to Gili Trawangan. There are a dozen speedboat companies that make the 90-minute voyage twice a day from Padangbai, Bali, to the island, for $60 each way, and fishing-boat taxis to the other islands cost around $20.
Where to stay: Gili Eco Villas [Trawangan; 62-0361-84-76-419; giliecov-illas.com) is a new resort of seven villas a 10-minute cidomo ride from the main strip of the island known as Sentral. Rates start at $95 for a one bedroom in low season and $145 in high season.
Kokomo Resort (Trawangan; 62-0370-64-2352; kokomogilit.com) is luxury right in the heart of the action. Rates start about $165 a night.
Scallywags Resort (Trawangan; 62-370-64-5301; scallywagsresort.com) is a short distance from Kokomo and rooms start at $85 or $135 depending on the season.

Detailed recipes not necessarily complicated
NIGELLA LAWSON
For The New York Times Syndicate
People talk about a recipe being difficult when what they really mean is that it is time-consuming.
Any recipe with a number of steps can indeed seem daunting, but once the processes are broken down, you often can see how simple each step is. In cooking, as in the rest of life, it is sometimes easier just to plunge into a project than to spend hours fretting about it.
The meal here is a simple one, but it takes time and some thought. It certainly requires no skill or expertise. To me, this food - a winey, flavorful mushroom soup followed by crepes stuffed with pears and vanilla ice cream and swathed in hot chocolate sauce - is both elegant and cozy. It's the sort of meal you might find in a restaurant in the French countryside or the sort of lunch you might want for a relaxed Saturday at home with friends.
Mushroom soup has been so debased by the canned versions that it is a cheering relief to eat the real thing. In the recipe here, dried porcini mushrooms permeate the soup with almost meaty flavor.
The potatoes are cooked not in water but in white wine, which elevates them considerably from simple filler.
Even a small amount of dried porcini in the soup makes a huge difference. Most fresh mushrooms, except for porto-bellos, don't have an awful lot of flavor, and if you use too many of those the soup will be unattractively murky.
Although the recipe calls for specific mushroom varieties, you can use whatever mushrooms you find when shopping. If there are no portobellos, relax. Even pearly button mushrooms, those little pretty things that taste of not much other than bouncy plastic, begin to have a little depth and resonance when cooked with dried porcini.
I cannot be as permissive, however, about the wine. You should not use any wine in the soup that you would not want to drink at the table.
This is a rule that always holds in cooking, but here especially the taste of the wine comes through distinctively. Anything too sharp or vinegary will make the chopping of mushrooms and peeling of potatoes an utter waste of time.
If you want, you can make this soup in advance, adding the final shot of
A marriage of simplicity and sophistication; Mushroom Soup with Wine
wine and cups of milk when you reheat. If you are having dessert immediately afterward, you do not need anything with the soup other than fabulous bread, and lots of it.
The dessert itself is a glorious assembly of lacy crepes, pears, ice cream and sauce. It reminds me of the great Escoffier invention poires Belle-Helene [the same dish, without the crepes), which I always asked for at my grandmother's house.
She used canned pears, and so can you. Poaching pears in vanilla and lemon syrup makes for wonderful flavor, but canned pears are certainly not a shameful substitute: just make sure you buy pears in juice, not syrup.
Crepes can be made and then reheated in a microwave or low oven. In some places you can even buy them, but there is a huge difference between homemade and store-bought crepes: many of the premade ones are not of high quality.
The chocolate sauce is patently easy, and can be left to cook itself while you eat the soup. If you have some Poire William or other pear liqueur, do add it to the sauce, but it isn't crucial.
Poires Belle-Helene are traditionally sprinkled with crystallized violets on serving, and violets look beautiful over
the dark, glossy chocolate sauce here, too. But if you do not have them, you do not have to rush out to buy some.
This is truly a menu that shows the alchemy of cooking. Modest ingredients - potatoes, mushrooms, flour, egg, milk and pears - are elevated by the addition of wine and chocolate and by careful, loving preparation into a restrained but elegant meal.
Mushroom Soup with Wine
Time: 1 hour
3/8 ounce (1/2 cup) dried porcini mushrooms
1 pound (about 2 medium) baking
potatoes, peeled and cut into 11/2-inch chunks
2 cups good white wine 1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon kosher salt or 11/2
teaspoons table salt 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 cup finely chopped onion 1 large clove garlic, minced 8 ounces portobello mushroom caps,
coarsely chopped
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, finely sliced
4 ounces button mushrooms, finely
sliced 3 tablespoons butter 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 2 cups milk Heavy cream, for garnish Finely chopped parsley, for garnish.
1. Place dried porcini in a 1-cup measuring cup, and fill with hot water. Set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan, combine potatoes, 13/4 cups wine, bay leaf and salt. Place over high heat to bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place a large soup pot over medium heat, and add oil. When hot, add onion and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, and stir for about 30 seconds. Drain porcini, reserving liquid.
4. Chop porcini and add to onion mixture. Add portobello mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, button mushrooms, butter and thyme. Stir until mushrooms begin to give off liquid and look less dry, about 10 minutes. When potatoes are tender, add them and their cooking liquid to pan of mushrooms. Add porcini soaking liquid and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook gently for 20 minutes.
5. Allow soup to cool slightly. Working in batches, use a blender to puree soup. Return soup to a pan on medium-low heat, and add remaining 1 /4 cup wine and the milk. Reheat just until soup is steaming; do not boil. To serve, place portions in bowls and garnish each with a squiggle of heavy cream and a sprinkling of parsley.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

Canned pears not a

slightly cooled For the chocolate sauce:
8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped 1/2 cup strong black coffee or 1 teaspoon instant coffee
dissolved in 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon Poire William liqueur, optional 6 scoops high-quality vanilla ice cream Crystallized violets, optional.
1. Prepare the pears: In a wide saucepan, mix together 1 cup sugar, vanilla bean, lemon zest and 3 cups water. Place over low heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Add pear halves and simmer until pears are tender but still keep their shape, about 30 minutes. Transfer pears to a bowl, and set aside. (Vanilla bean may be rinsed, dried and placed in a jar of sugar to make vanilla-scented sugar.]
2. While pears poach, prepare crepes: heat oven to 200 degrees. Mix together the flour, milk and egg until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in melted butter. Place a nonstick or well-seasoned crepe pan or 8-inch skillet over medium-low heat.
3. Pour a scant 1/4 cup batter into center of pan; lift pan and swirl it so batter covers bottom thinly and evenly. Return pan to heat, and allow it to sit until bottom of crepe is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Flip crepe, and cook other side for 30 to 60 seconds. Transfer to a parchment-paper lined baking sheet, and place in oven to keep warm. (Alternatively, crepes may be allowed to cool for reheating later.) Continue with remaining batter, to make a total of at least 6 crepes.
4. Prepare the chocolate sauce: In a small saucepan, combine chocolate, coffee and 1/2 cup sugar. Place over low heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate melts. Add

cream, return to a bare simmer, and stir until smooth. Stir in liqueur, if using. Pour into a pitcher, and keep warm.
5. To serve: Cut pear halves into thin slices. Arrange crepes on a clean work surface, and cover half of each crepe with pear slices. Fold crepes over to make six semicircles. Use a spatula to transfer crepes to individual serving plates or one large platter. At one side of each semicircle place a scoop of ice cream. Fold other side over to make a fat quarter. Top each quarter with hot chocolate sauce, and garnish with crystallized violets.
Yield: 6 servings.
